Craigslist Foundation’s LikeMinded Connects Leaders with Ideas for Local Change

Folks, for around a year, Craigslist Foundation has been working on LikeMinded, a new online tool for local change makers that launches today. The deal is that people do great work in their neighborhoods and local communities, but no one hears about ’em.

LikeMinded will collect stories of local innovations, success, and sometimes even failures and help information get where it needs to go, whether that is to other community activists, potential collaborators, or the media. This helps other people replicate successes in their own communities.

Last summer, Craigslist Foundation got a 3-year grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Technology for Engagement Initiative to build and develop LikeMinded.

It’s for anyone who cares about their neighborhood or town, free and no login is needed to discover local stories. LikeMinded was built especially for people who want to change something in their community but don’t know where to start. It’s also designed for leaders of successful community projects to get credit for their good work and inspire others.

Craigslist Foundation has also been working with stakeholders in local communities (mayors, city managers, museums, libraries, communities of faith, local business, etc.) to spread their insights across the community and encourage greater collaboration. LikeMinded’s homepage is a great starting point.

The LikeMinded team has also created some videos to walk you through each feature of the site.

What story from your town should be added to LikeMinded?

  1. There was a vaccine developed for a rare autoimmune neurological disease called myasthenia gravis here at University of Alabama at Birmingham by a doctor named Dr. Edwin Blalock. Despite promising results from clinical trials, funding has been impossible to come by, for mostly political and monetary reasons. The vaccine is now in Belgium with a doctor (who also has myasthenia gravis), Dr. Stephane Huberty. He is the sole responsible party for the vaccine’s development. He needs investors. This vaccine can cure the disease and save the lives of 100’s of thousands of people…and that is just in the US alone. Unfortunately, since it isn’t cancer or HIV or any of the bigger diseases, no pharmaceutical company is willing to waste their time on it. The national MGFA organization, for reasons they aren’t willing to divulge, largely ignore the vaccine. All the vaccine needs to save lives are human clinical trials. All of the research up to this point has been solid and irrefutable. The website where you can learn more is I can get you in touch with Dr. Huberty or Dr. Blalock. Dr. Huberty is willing to repeat trials if requested. As a desperate attempt to gain attention for the vaccine, and as a show of confidence in the vaccine, Dr. Huberty injected himself with it. As of this date, Dr. Huberty is healed. Please consider this story as one of your starters.


    1. How do I go about getting in contact with Drs. Huberty or Blalock for information about being a participate in the trials.

  2. I am an MG sufferer and have been following Dr. Blalock’s work for years. I’ve confirmed that his theories are sound with others in the field of Physical Chemistry. Unfortunately, the medical community refuses to take notice. This cure could also have implications for curing Multiple Sclerosis, types of Arthritis etc. as they have similarities to MG. Although the Muscular Dystrophy Association has provided some limited support for Dr. Blalock’s efforts, I’m surprised that they haven’t stepped up and gotten behind this research. It would seem that a cure for a neuromuscular disease would do tremendous good for thier fundraising efforts to support other areas as well.

    Please consider shining a public light on this issue.
